a place for zinesters - writers and readers
In general calls for submission and announcements are to be posted on your blog and the forum is for questions and discussions. However, since people seem to think the forum gets more attention, let's use this thread - and this thread only - for any submissions wanted post. Feel free to aslo post on your blog. Thanks!
Get Fit For the Pit is a zine dedicated to fitness and nutrition with much focus on those of us who have come from a punk/activist background (or any background where sports and healthy choices were somewhat jeered). I have noticed that our subculture puts a lot of emphasis on touring, traveling, going to shows, running on little sleep, etc. These things do not always add up to a healthy lifestyle, especially as some of us are getting older.
I wanted to put a zine out about taking back our fitness and health.
Issue #2 is going to be all about nutrition. Some ideas to get you going…
This is not just about being vegan or vegetarian. (I am actually neither, but respect both diets.) I am looking for essays or information regarding what has worked for you in your nutrition habits. Have you made a change that has made a huge difference for you, perhaps even eliminating symptoms of an illness you may have?
You have the option of emailing me your essay for me to lay out or you can do a half-size layout yourself and mail it in. Please keep essays to roughly 1000 words. I am also looking for cover art, so please get in touch if you are interested! As of now, the deadline for the nutrition issue will be December 31, 2011.
Email any submissions or questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
Mail to: Nicole Harris PO Box 35501 Richmond, VA 23235
Get Fit For the Pit #1 is out and available at the above address for $2 and 2 stamps or thru Click Clack Distro.
Please feel free to pass this information along!
What I'm looking for right now, for Once Upon A Distro are personal zines, particularly those by women, people of color, and GLBTQ folks. I'm not opposed to spoken word titles and crafts, but those will not be my priority.
Please feel free to mail your zine for submission (along with your contact info and wholesale guidelines) to:
201 W. Evergreen Ave #1012,
Philadelphia, PA 19118
or email with questions: email@example.com
I am looking for anyone who would like to contribute to the third issue of my zine Crime Unlimited Inc. Co. After the last issue, which was incredibly time producing to work on alone, I wanted to go back to my original vision of the zine and make it a collaborative effort.
The theme is, as the title implies, crime. This can be in the form of hardboiled detective stories, crime fiction, cartoons about crime/mischief/etc. Of course, anything from artwork to comics to articles to short stories would be greatly appreciated. This is actually my first all-digital zine work. If you could do it on computer or scan it, email it to me, that would be awesome. I'm looking to get it out within the next month or two. If interested, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can talk. Thanks for looking.
Hey! Do you intentionally overhear great/weird conversations on the bus and at coffee shops?
WRITE A STORY ABOUT IT.
I have idea for a zine that's in early planning stages and it's tentatively titled "Overheard: Stories from Compulsive Eavesdroppers"
I'm looking for stories/transcripts/comics about real conversations that you've overheard. People talk about crazy shit (especially out of context) so don't pretend you don't have anything to write about for this!
Once again, this is in early planning stages. I don't have a distro lined up or anything. I have access to free printing as long as I don't abuse it too much so it should be a cheap zine if it comes together ($1 for a quarter page booklet seems reasonable to me).
Email submissions to: email@example.com
I have a zine shop in Nottingham and I am currently on the lookout for zines about music and gigs. If you make a zine about any kind of music, please get in touch!
Here is my blog: Caribou

Queerios: A Radical Coloring Book
This will be the kind of activity book I never got (but always wanted) in my early teens. I'd like to put together a coloring and activity book highlighting people who were groundbreaking to you, personally. Harvey Milk and Oscar Wilde will always have a place carved out for them. This is about exploring people who did more than admit their same-sex attraction to the rest of the world. How about what Leslie Feinburg and Kate Borenstein did for trans visability and challenging gender norms? Or how James baldwin and Audre Lorde made queer people challenge racism within the GLBT community.
Priority will be given to activities like dot-to-dots, paper dolls, and word searches, but coloring pages with biographies are great as well. The deadline for this is March 1st so I can have it put together by mid-to-late march, and out in the world by April.
